Lobster is just as good as Red's Eats and less money. Shorter line too. Plenty of tables to sit down and enjoy. It doesn't get any fresher. Ask for butter on the side for your lobster roll because it comes plain. The lobster was still...More

Reds as usual had a long queue so we tested the place across the street. Nicer eating area in fact and whole lobster meals. We shared a lobster and crab roll. The crab was excellent the lobster a good one. A wee bit less expensive...More

We had lunch here last week, following a recommendation from a travel guide book suggesting people try Spragues’s, if the line at Red’s across the street was too daunting. Our disappointing experience was similar to that of other recent posts. We ordered the lobster roll,...More

The lobster roll was good, the fish and chips not so good. At $11.99 I was expecting a fillet or two but it was four fish stick sized and shaped pieces. The breading had no flavor, french fries were good. Employees were friendly.

We stopped at Sprague's for what we thought would be a cheap "food truck" kind of experience, but despite the appearance, this is not a cheap place. The food, though, is what you'd expect from a food truck. It was pretty good food, but nothing...More

They advertise a whole lobster on a toasted roll. That is what you get without the frills. Make sure you ask for butter and mayo if that's what you like. We ate outside on the patio deck on a picnic table overlooking the water. Like...More

People are lined up across the street at Red's. Been there. The food is just as good here. Huge lobster roll. Good fries and tasty cole slaw. Outdoor bench seating(same as Red's). Ocean breezes. Just plain good.

Today, we decided to try Sprague's Lobster Restaurant; we usually eat at Red's Eat, but the line was very long. We ordered the Fish and Chips ($11.95 each) and an iced tea ($4.00 each - yikes). We were so disappointed. Rather than receiving a nice...More
